Award-winning children’s music artist and yoga teacher Kira Willey is back with Mindful Moments for Kids, a unique collection of 30 one-minute mindfulness exercises that can be done seated, any time of day—perfect for classroom or home use, and great in the car. Kira’s easy techniques help children harness their energy, release anxiety, and develop self-awareness and compassion. Each track consists of Kira’s simple voiceover instructions set to her original songs. Recently awarded a Parents' Choice GOLD Award, the recording also includes two bonus songs: an all-new recording of Kira’s popular “Dance for the Sun,” and a mantra-like lullaby, “Just Be.”
Kira Willey’s three previous releases of yoga albums for kids have all won Parents' Choice Awards and earned national acclaim. These unique, two-in-one albums blend upbeat, danceable music with get-up-and-move yoga inspiration. The collections of joyful folk/pop originals, packaged in eco-friendly digipaks, also feature Bonus Yoga Tracks with Kira’s instructional voiceovers, and lyric booklets that guide parents and teachers with illustrations of Kira’s kid-friendly yoga routines.
Her hit songs include “Colors,” featured in a worldwide Dell ad campaign, and “Roller Coaster,” which won the Independent Music Award for Best Children’s Song; both get regular national radio play. Kira’s “Mindful Moments” series can be heard daily on SiriusXM Radio’s Kids Place Live, and she’s also the creator and host of Fireflies Yoga, a series of interstitial yoga-for-kids programs airing on PBS TV affiliates nationwide. Willey leads training sessions each year with hundreds of teachers at the National Kids Yoga Conference in Washington DC.
Kira's highly popular Rockin' Yoga School Assemblies are booking nearly a year out; she also leads Professional Development days at elementary schools, helping administrators and faculty incorporate yoga and mindfulness into their school day. She conducts workshops with teachers and parents, teaches her innovative musical yoga program, and performs Yoga Concerts with her band at family-friendly venues far and wide!
